Installing updates for the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 can take longer than expected in some scenarios

.NET Framework 4 related updates have led to the loss of far too much valuable time for me in recent days – I am very grateful to Susan Bradley for the heads up.

I’ve NEVER seen a .NET update apply quickly. In any set of Windows updates, the .NET ones will always be slower.

Worse, I can’t count how many times the .NET (and Visual Studio) updates fail altogether.

Worse, when they do fail, the only solution is to download a tool to rip out the entire .NET stack and re-install them one by one.

It’s pathetic. Typical Microsoft quality.
